This free form abstract mirrors the floral feeling of beach bonfires that scent the evening air with their wisps of fragrant smoke.  I created this painting with multiple controlled and raw pours of acrylic paint on canvas to achieve layered depth and interest.  Pours continue over edges to create interest from every angle. Painting can be displayed in either horizontal or vertical orientation.

Getting to Know Dorothy

From childhood on, Dorothy was always eager about painting. Her grandfather encouraged her to graduate from a finger-painting enthusiast to a more mature and serious artist. Dorothy’s approach to her abstract artwork entails pouring paint in transparent layers to create sweeping colors across the canvas. Regardless, she manages to stay true to her childhood roots: “To this day, my clothes and hands always reflect the colors I am working with,” says Dorothy. “And I once again rediscovered the joys of finger-painting with my children!”
